Orencia And Fatigue

Orencia And Fatigue

I've taken 4 injections of Orencia and I'm so exhausted I can barely function. Also, my RA symptoms are the same. This happened the last time I tried it, but this time I'm trying to stick with it. Does anyone else have this issue with Orencia? Also, how long until I can expect to feel a difference in my RA symptoms? Thanks.

I've been on Orencia for a little over a year, with no side effects. Have been feeling great, until this past month: my first (major) flare....hope the Orencia continues to work!

It took me a good 6 months of Orencia to feel better. I had tried other meds that didn't work at all. My rheumatologist encouraged me to keep with it since originally it was helping some, then after awhile, it really kicked in. Unfortunately, for me, I had to have a knee replacement revised, go off of it for a couple of months & then start all over again!

Good luck with that. Please keep me posted. I've been working around the house moving things, boxing up stuff, trying to clean (ha, ha). For me it helps to ease the pain and stress. Keep in touch. πŸ”πŸ”πŸ₯🐎🐎

Did he (or she) tell you when is the best time to take it and with or without food? That could make a difference on you not being able to sleep well. Hope you are better. πŸ”πŸ”πŸ£πŸ€πŸŽπŸŽ
